Town rights were granted in 1333 by Emperor Louis the Bavarian.
The town's arms might be described thus: Argent in base a mount of three vert, thereon an eagle reguardant wings expanded sable armed Or and langued gules.
The usual German word for eagle is Adler, but the poetic word Aar also exists. The noun Aar can follow the weak declension, in which case the genitive form is Aaren. The "mount of three" (called a Dreiberg in German heraldry), moreover, can be taken to be a stone (Stein in German). This makes the arms canting, as the town's name, Arnstein, can be taken to mean "Eagle's Stone", which is the image suggested by the charges in the arms. The town's oldest known seal, from 1378, already showed this image, as have all Arnstein's seals and coats of arms since then, although the eagle has changed in size and shape over time. The tinctures are known to have been used since 1544.
In Arnstein's new residential area has stood since the late 1990s a terraced housing development with 20 low-energy houses, the so-called Arnsteiner Sonnenhäuser ("Sunhouses"). Part of the energy supply comes from a solar collector area of more than 210 m² through which water is heated and household heating is provided. Furthermore, 95% of the space heat can be recovered through a controlled ventilation system. By using rainwater to flush the toilets, choosing ecologically friendly building materials, forgoing a basement and thus insulating the houses and taking other measures, further energy-saving and environmentally protective measures could be realized. The "Sunhouses" were built collaboratively by the 20 builders in the framework of the promotional programme for experimental home building, thereby reducing acquisition and planning costs.
Not far outside Arnstein, on Bundesstraße 26a going towards Schwebenried, stands the Schnittpunktdenkmal, or "Crossing Point Monument". It marks the spot where the 50th parallel of north latitude crosses the 10th meridian of east longitude: .
In May 2005, the world's biggest solar park was built near Arnstein (Erlasee).
